A Time to Endure
The second book of the Strengthen What Remains series is now available in paperback, ebook and as an audiobook.
A Time to Endure was released the morning of December 12th and by that afternoon was on the Amazon Genre Fiction-War bestseller list. At the same time the first book in the series, Through Many Fires, was number 25 on the list.
In the first novel, Through Many Fires, terrorists smuggle a nuclear bomb into Washington D.C. and detonate it during the State of the Union address. Army veteran and congressional staffer Caden Westmore is in nearby Bethesda and watches as a mushroom cloud grows over the capital. The next day, as he drives away from the still burning city to find loved ones and family, he learns that another city has been destroyed and then another. America is under siege. Panic ensues and society begins to unravel.
A Time to Endure is the second book in the Strengthen What Remains series and opens on the same day Through Many Fires ends. Caden is home, but the nation’s economy teeters on the verge of collapse. The dollar plunges, inflation runs rampant, and the next civil war threatens to decimate the wounded country. In the face of tyranny, panic, and growing hunger, Caden struggles to keep his family and town together. But how can he save his community when the nation is collapsing around it?
